Let’s see if we got this straight. The NBA has a struggling franchise in Toronto, that recently hired one of the league’s favorite sons—Bryan Colangelo—as general manager. And said team just won the NBA Draft Lottery, overcoming a nine percent chance to win the top pick?
Yeah, that is totally legitimate.
It’s nice to see that some traditions of the NBA are still alive and well. The Chicago Bulls just announced that they would be happy with Wayman Tisdale. Just kidding. Not like there is a clear-cut No. 1 in this draft.
But could the league at least try to seem a little bit more legitimate that Vito’s bingo game at St. Angelo’s in the old hood?
